Picture the scene, Saturday November the 1st with the screams of Marilyn Burns still ringing in your eyes from a previously great night at MAYHEM. What do you do on Saturday? Stay on your sofa watching Saturday Morning Kitchen with James Martin whilst he talks dribble to chef's who are making dishes that you never have a hope in hell of making whilst inter-cut with clips from Keith Floyd, Rick Stein, Omlette challengezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.....................
No you don't! Get yourself together get on a bus or taxi (That way you can have a hair of the dog pint) and get yourself down to an epic Saturday of MAYHEM festival. And here are what treats lay ahead........
Kicking off at 12pm with Dead Snow 2:Red VS Dead. Yes the frozen Nazi Zombies are back! From what i'm hearing this is equally as good as Dead Snow if not better from all reports especially the humour has been ramped up to a Spinal Tap 11!
DEAD SNOW 2-OFFICIAL TRAILER.
After being thoroughly awaken from your Halloween slumber by Nazi Zombies next up at 2pm we have Starry Eyes which sounds very interesting indeed and has been getting some great reactions from what I have read it tells the tale of an Hollywood actress who decides to take a satanic route to securing success "A bloody Collision of body horror and film industry satire" Well you can't beat a bit of Saturday Afternoon Satanism!
STARRY EYES-OFFICIAL TRAILER
Next up at 4pm we have a new movie from New Zealand called Housebound and described as "The Very Best Horror Movie produced in the country since BRAINDEAD(DEAD ALIVE)" Starburst. Very high praise indeed. It tells the story of Kylie who is placed under house arrest and things are much worse than she expected. The house is haunted and also her mums, who she hates. Said to be a blend of Gothic chills and blood splattered laughs, Bring it on I say!
And then on to 6:30 pm and the annual feature of SCARY SHORTS, "Featuring the best short films from around the world, the UK and closer to home.A sinister showcase of the scary, the weird and wonderous" If you have been to MAYHEM or maybe not, I would urge you to along to Scary Shorts as it's always a blast!
On to 9:30 PM and a showing of The Canal with special guests Director Ivan Kavanagh and Producer Anne Marie Naughton. It tells the story of David who is a films Archivist and suspects his wife is having an affair, As the pressure mounts, an old film starts to unsettle and disturb him and the new family home begins to reveal some very dark secrets indeed....
It has to be said as with previous festivals these events with the special guests are always a great highlight of the festival and this certainly looks to definitely be one of those occasions!
THE CANAL - Official Trailer.
That's not all folks! No its no, 11:30PM See's the showing of in my opinion a very underated slasher movie STAGEFRIGHT (AQUARRIUS/DELERIA) Directed by the briliant Michele Soavi. Rehearsing a musical based on real life serial killer named The Night Owl, A bickering cast are locked in overnight unaware that an escaped lunatic has joined them. Now from that synopsis what a great film to take you through the midnight hour!
